| O-T Lounge|| Glad I'm not in college anymore - siliconvalleytiger on 5/12/13 at 11:16 am|
Graduated 13 yrs ago but the thought of finals (and all this exam talk) still makes my stomach churn. No matter how bad things get at work, I still wouldn't trade my troubles for final exams. I hated that part of college with a passion and I wasn't a bad student....

| Tiger Rant|| Hypothetical scenario with 4 former QBs - siliconvalleytiger on 5/5/13 at 12:08 pm|
Here's a hypothetical scenario with 4 former QBs - Jamarcus, Mauck, Davey and Flynn.
You are at home playing an elite SEC team like Bama or Florida. You have 6 mins left on the clock, have the ball at your own 30 and a 10 point deficit. Who would you rather have at QB? Assume a great defense like...

I really think he has the opportunity to be a 1st or 2nd round guy next year provided he continues his improvement. It would be great to see him live upto his hype and potential....
| O-T Lounge|| What's the most instant pain relief that you've experienced? - siliconvalleytiger on 5/3/13 at 6:00 pm|
In other words, where you went from pain to no pain almost immediately and felt the relief.
Mine was a headache that was so severe that I couldn't kill it with any medication. Jumped in a pool of cold water and it was gone in a second. Never came back and I never felt more relief....
| Movie/TV Board|| Best acting job on GOT - siliconvalleytiger on 4/27/13 at 3:03 pm|
I think Joffrey Baratheon (Jack Gleeson) does the best acting job. A combination of clueless, gullible and pure evil. His range takes him anywhere from annoying to plain scary.
The imp is a close second for me. ...

| Movie/TV Board|| Question about 'The Killing' on Netflix ** No spoilers please** - siliconvalleytiger on 4/14/13 at 3:24 pm|
I didn't have high hopes when I started but it has me sucked in. Finished season 1 in 2 days. Can't wait to start season 2 tonight.
Question is, does it go beyond season 2 or do they reveal the killer at the end of season 2.
No spoilers please!!
| O-T Lounge|| Should rear parking sensors be made mandatory on cars/trucks? - siliconvalleytiger on 4/14/13 at 3:02 pm|
The thread about the dog getting run over got me wondering. With trucks and SUVs, the blind spot while backing up is pretty substantial and we know the technology exists and works well. I have it on my SUV and have avoided a few incidents with small objects and pets. Starts beeping and I stop immedi...
| O-T Lounge|| Do you love where you live? - siliconvalleytiger on 4/12/13 at 9:44 pm|
I'm in Northern California in the Bay Area and while I often don't agree with the politics, I've come to really love this place. Good jobs, lots of activities and the feel that you're living in a place that makes a difference to the entire world when it comes to innovation.
How about you?...
| O-T Lounge|| Do you feel the need to look/act older at work? - siliconvalleytiger on 3/30/13 at 8:31 pm|
I'm in my early 30s but most of my peer level at work is people/execs well into their 40s and 50s. We're in a corporate environment and I look a little older anyway but feel the need to dress and 'look' and act even older. I'm even keeping an extra 10 lbs on me because it adds a few years to my look...

Mine is back to peak levels. Market shot up last year and the Bay Area/SF is back to exorbitant prices. Nothing even worth looking at under a million and even that doesn't get you much....
| Tiger Rant|| Reasons for LSU's defensive decline post Bama 2012 - siliconvalleytiger on 3/30/13 at 7:45 pm|
If you think this is Germans and/or not worth discussing then don't.
The defense looked pretty dominant up until that last Bama drive. What surprised me though was the way they played the rest of the season. Post Bama, the pass rush was gone, the secondary resembled swiss cheese and some teams ev...

Just flew back from Asia after a 2 week trip and the jet lag is beginning to hit me. Been an international traveler for most of my life but still haven't figured out the best remedy other than to keep myself up and let it run its course.
Any OT suggestions?...

That is, how do you keep them alive? We've gone through 3 of them one at a time and none of them survived longer than a month.
Not like I haven't invested in their care. We have a 10 gallon tank for one tiny fish with a water filter and all the other fish paraphernalia. Been very gentle with the ...

| More Sports Board|| How was the Freeh report wrong again? - siliconvalleytiger on 2/10/13 at 1:58 pm|
The basis of the report is that Paterno knew and did not do enough. I really don't understand what the Paterno clan would like us to believe. That he did go to the police? That he didn't associate with a child molestor after the fact?
| O-T Lounge|| Anyone else not miss college? - siliconvalleytiger on 2/9/13 at 7:47 pm|
I graduated a while back (2000) but the thoughts of classes and exams still gives me the sinking feeling. I feel far less pressure in the real world even though the stakes are much higher.
I felt I had much more fun after college with more resources at my disposal....
